Warm and Cold


The heat from your touch
and  

Your passion
still

Light my nights

Morning’s glow
brings
the truth

My soul
chilled

I know better
than to think
you’re mine

Winter’s Child – #OctPoWriMo


*I know that I am Much too early for a poem about winter.  But the words “Winter’s Child” came to me and would not let me go.  So I had to do something with them.  I hope you enjoy.  🙂

Your eyes are icy blue;

your hair, winter white.

The sun no longer warms us,

Try as it might.

Your skin is as cold

as the lonely moon.

The stars look on with envy

as they spin their frigid tune.

The northern winds chill us

as you whisper December’s name.

A blanket of snow, your gift.

A frozen landscape, your aim.

No harm is meant to us

as the ice crystals softly drift.

For the Winter Child’s heart is tender.

The snow, a winter gift.

#writephoto-Magic-Snow Day


** This is for a prompt on Sue Vincent’s blog.  If you would like to get in on her weekly prompt, you can find out all about the fun here.  Sue gave us the beautiful photo above and the word Magic.  So this is my humble little offering: Snow Day Magic 

I finally released her from my grip and she burst out the front door and into the cold December morning.  It was the most magical of all days; a Snow Day!

A Snow Day means not only do you get to play in the snow, but there is NO School that day!  This is a miracle to a child.

I Fall For Fall


I am one to say “I don’t like Fall”.  The trees lose their leaves.  It looks like they are dying.   Then there is the approach of winter.  The cold, the snow, brrrrr!

I spent most of my life in the Northwest.  The cold and the snow were nothing to laugh about in most cases.

Now I live in Texas.  It’s a whole different world.  My BFF in Oregon has already had snow and below freezing temps.  Here, I still have to run the A/C in the afternoon.

Sooner or later the fall “feel” comes over me and I’m into it!  Look at the gorgeous colors of the gourds & pumpkins in the picture above!

I’m ready to put another blanket on the bed.  I want to break out my cozy sweaters & scarves!

I haven’t had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte this year, but I have a Starbucks Gift Card in my wallet that I’m not afraid to use!

Are you ready for Fall?
